Out of the Shire: A Tribute Exhibition to Middle-Earth

Out of the Shire: A Tribute Exhibition to Middle-Earth

December 14, 2013 - December 31, 2013

Dec 14, 6:00PM - 10:00PM

Please join us as we pay tribute to legendary author J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved epic high fantasy classics, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.  In celebration of Peter Jackson's cinematic adaptation of Tolkien's The Hobbit, Nucleus will be honoring Tolkien's work by curating a dual level show featuring artwork from fans and artists all over the world by once again accepting open submissions and debuting the inspired works through our moderated blog.

Written between 1937 - 1949, what started as a simple sequel to the much loved Hobbit, turned into a full blown three volume  anthology of all things fantasy. The Lord of the Rings is now known for being the 2nd best selling novel ever written and its inspiration continues to be seen today in artworks, music, video games, and films/television.

Join Us for the Opening Reception - $5 Admission at the door

Free refreshments and snacks!

• DIY dwarf beard station
